Making time or marking time, how do you typically spend your days? Are you out there making things happen and making your dreams come true or are you simply marking time and taking up space? Far too many of us needlessly waste time and waste our lives away because weve never learned how to make out time count.
How would you like to start making time and get more things done with considerably less effort? Youd probably jump at the chance with both feet, wouldnt you? Well, youd better get ready to jump. Although every person is granted the same 24 hours every day, you can learn how to reach higher, go farther and get more things done in a day than others could ever dream of accomplishing in a life time.
Although each of us is granted the same 365 days a year, how we use our time will in large measure dictate how much success, happiness and fulfillment we get to experience. While its true that we may not be able to actually "make" more hours in a 24 hour day, we can certainly make the most out of each available day, hour and minute. Therein lies the key.
You can get more things done as you live each day and not waste it, squeeze more zest from your life and not foolishly fritter it away. Its important to appreciate that each day is a invaluable collector's item a precious moment in time to be treasured and enjoyed from start to finish.
I encourage you to live today with all the purpose and passion you can muster, continually squeezing each minute for all its worth. Look for opportunities to savor every minute, embracing each fleeting moment as a precious gift from God. Grab these priceless moments, hold on tight and never let them go. Instead of marking time, youll soon be making time and making history as well.
